Amazon Gets Into UFC Pay-Per-View Fight Streaming

  • Fans at UFC 220 at the Boston TD Garden on Saturday

Amazon will charge $64.99 for Saturday's UFC 222, headlined by Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya. If someone comes to your house, you can't say you need 10 weeks to train and get your nutrition right. "I'm on vacation!'" she recalled with a laugh. Cyborg may be an overwhelming favorite, but she's always exciting to watch, and there are some other big names on the card, including Stefan Struve and Frankie Edgar.

"This is going to show you it's real", Cyborg said. Debuting strawweight Mackenzie Dern spends time in Southern California before kicking off her first UFC fight week. "My team and my manager Danny (Rubenstein) are really good at helping me concentrate just on my training". "It's a chance to fight the best woman in the world, so I had to take it". Justino is now almost a -2000 favorite on some sportsbooks, so the hope for this makeshift headliner is simply that it exposes more folks to the Brazilian's legendary brand of beatdowns and orients us toward a more palatable fight for her later this year. Stamann managed to steal some considerable wind from the sails of the highly-rated French prospect Tom Duquesnoy in his last outing, a true upset given the hype surrounding his opponent and with Caraway's position just shy of the top five, look to the victor of this one to make some serious strides towards a title challenge.

"You're totally right. I was like, 'Man, I feel like I can fight already two years ago.' (Laughs) And it really is hard, especially for me because I'm someone who doesn't have too much patience to let things flow and have the right timing for everything".

Frankie Edgar was supposed to challenge Max Holloway for the UFC featherweight championship in the UFC 222 main event.

This fight may have been booked on three weeks' notice, but it's actually many years in the making.

"I've got nothing scheduled".

T-CITY'S TURN: An upset victory by Ortega (13-0, 1 no-contest) would herald the arrival of an intriguing new UFC star. Ortega's coaches want him to use his strengths, particularly against Edgar's ferocious work rate in standup fighting. "This fight could go a lot of ways".

This is a woman who has had to suffer through years of having idiots insult her for her appearance, all while she was dominating every women's 145-pound fighter in the world. The PPV cards will be available on Amazon's Prime Video, but viewers do not have to be Prime members to order it. Amazon will allow viewers to access a replay of the card for 24 hours after the end of the event.
